Rafael De La Cruz




I solve puzzles, answer questions and connect the dots. Inventing, Innovating & Optimizing are my Love Languages. 💡✨ I collaborate with founders and funders to make dreams come true... Prefer dialogue with questions that can’t be answered to those with answers that can’t be questioned. Building brands, creating categories and growing businesses in new and frontier industries.
